OFFICIAL: Tomas Rincon joins Torino

August 11, 2017

Tomas Rincon has completed his move across the city to join Torino on a one-year loan deal.

The Venezuelan midfielder was signed in January from Genoa but was reduced to a bit-part role for the remainder of the year and barely featured as a starter.

Torino confirmed his transfer earlier today in a statement via the clubs official website:

“Torino Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Tomas Eduardo Rincon Hernandez from Juventus Football Club on loan with option to buy.”

Juventus have confirmed the deal as well, confirmed that the deal will net them €3m for the loan with a further €6m option to buy next summer with the option becoming an obligation if he players a certain amount of games.

Torino President Urbano Cairo praised Rincon and the signing in a statement of his own:

“Tomas Rincon is a versatile and complete midfielder who combines technical and physical qualities with personality.

“He’s a hard worker on the pitch and a constant point of reference for his teammates. He knows the pitfalls of Serie A, and is an ambitious and determined lad.

“In addition to his talent, he brings experience and enthusiasm to Torino, so on behalf of the whole club I’m happy to extend the most cordial welcome to Tomas Rincon.

“Work well, and Forza Toro!”

    Am happy we have upgraded the midfield by letting lemina and rincon go… if sturaro doesnt hit the ground running this season, hes next to leave next season. We need a quality midfield.

  • Alas poor Rincon, we knew him well.
    Had high hopes for him, and given the option, i would take him over Sturaro, who flaps and rarely looks composed.

    Never forget that great assist for Higuain….through the eye of a needle.
    Grazie Tomas – Wishing you luck in your adventures across town

      Sturaro is more versatile though don’t you think? Neither should be 1st choice in a world class midfield, but as a squad player I would not waste the spot on Rincon. Btw, the Torino chairman looks pretty shocked in that picture!

        He only stays because he is Italian. But he is younger tho

        • Dar Black

          He fought hard in the infamous Munich clash at home, and scored. We need fighters who can chip in with goals in the squad.

          • Naharnia

            Yes true but he fluffs his line more than he scores that was an exception personally his best performance where he really was dedicated was the Madrid match 2 years ago I still remember his Ronaldo block
